Thanks for the post. Log in to Reply Interesting!! Log in to Reply Damn, I’m beginning to doubt this Joseph Smith’s teachings. Log in to Reply I really want Spalding-Rigdon to be true. It explains so many little coincidences that otherwise don’t mean anything. It just doesn’t have anything concrete enough to hang your hat on. Log in to Reply This Joseph Smith character sounds rather unscrupulous. I’m sure his lengthy and well-known history of crimes and deceptions will ensure that no reasonable person trusts him as anything other than a petty liar and conman.

Super interesting, though I do take it with a grain of salt since Mormons were being persecuted pretty heavily at the time and I wouldn’t put it past people to fib a bit to make the religion look bad.
